    On the 17th May 2011, Queen Elizabeth of England will be the first reigning Monarch to visit the Irish Republic, whatever ones view of that visit, the fact remains that Britain is Ireland’s largest trading partner, which means that many tens of thousands of Irish people remain in employment due to that excellent working relationship.
    The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) has welcomed the planned trip by the Queen to Dublin's Croke Park, during her landmark state visit to Ireland in May.
    "In the best traditions of our Association, we will extend a warm welcome to Croke Park - a Céad Míle Fáilte - to Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh”,a statement from the organisation read.
    The GAA also said it hoped such promotion of Gaelic games would encourage greater participation from the unionist community.
    "We are confident that this historic visit to Croke Park by the Queen will be welcomed by those who play, administer and support our games, at home and abroad - including of course throughout Britain," the statement added.
    "We hope also that it will encourage a greater interest and participation in our games by our fellow Irishmen and women of the Unionist tradition."
    It has also emerged that Her Majesty will visit Dublin's Garden of Remembrance - which honours all those who fought for Irish freedom - including IRA men.
    The Queen will attend events at Trinity College Dublin, the National War Memorial Gardens in Islandbridge to commemorate British War Dead from across all of Ireland as just some of the events on a busy itinerary from 17 May to 20 May with a visit to the Taoiseach at Government Buildings also included with a speech at a state dinner at Dublin Castle.
    There are also plans for the Queen and the Duke to visit the Irish National Stud in Kildare, as well as Cashel, in County Tipperary, home to the popular tourist destination of the Rock of Cashel, and Cork.
